Wrote the #HelloCode monthly report for January today, and published the blog post version of the same.

Also sorted through all the suggestions for #exist that we got on #changemap over the past couple of days—only 1/5 was not a duplicate. It’s so frustrating when users ignore the message right on the suggestion form that asks them to search for their idea before suggesting it. It creates a big waste of time for me and doesn’t help anyone. /rant

Also updated the Exist FAQs page, as it was quite out-of-date in a few areas.

Yeah, I need to work on it and get the approve/decline process streamlined.

Could do what Stack Overflow does and display similar suggestions as they type in their own. I’m betting a lot of people either don’t read the instructional message or just don’t feel like searching themselves.

Too much to do - I know that feeling! I actually checked out the Exist changemap earlier and noticed that the search bar dynamically displays results as you type (which makes it even more of a wonder that people don’t bother searching first!). If that functionality is reusable, maybe you could toss it onto the suggestion input as a quick fix. Just a thought.
